Introduction: The pattern of HIV transmission in Iran is changing from Intravenous drug abuse to sexual transmission, the consequence of which is increase in infants and children HIV. Case report: In this article we presented three cases of pediatric HIV infection. The three children had drug abuser fathers (which 2 of them were deceased at the time of the child HIV diagnosis). The ages of first diagnosis of HIV in the children were 18 months, 6 years and 13 years. The first two children  were in AIDS phase at the time of HIV diagnosis, but the third case had not yet entered the AIDS phase, although her CD4 was decreasing and antiretroviral therapy was started for her at the age of 18Y( for a CD4 count of 312/]3).  Conclusion: These children represented the three different scenarios of disease progression in perinatal HIV infection (rapid progress, usual and slow progression).
